The Daniel Plan: Chocolate and Walnut Dipped Frozen Banana Pops


  • 8 oz 70% (or higher) dark chocolate, broken into pieces or chunks
  • 2 bananas, cut in half
  • 4 tbsp crushed walnuts
  • 4 wooden skewers or popsicle sticks


Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. If using a microwave, be careful not to “cook” the chocolate; nuke it for 30 seconds at a time until soft and gooey. Let chocolate sit for about 5 minutes to cool slightly.

Place crushed walnuts on a plate. Thread banana onto skewer or popsicle stick. Dip half of banana into melted chocolate and roll carefully into crushed walnuts.

Repeat until all banana pieces are dipped. Place dipped onto a tray lined with wax paper and freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
